Making a Difference Quintessentially Foundation will be supporting Greenhouse and Place 2 Be this year through the Venice to Rome Bike Ride and the Annual Poker Night. The money raised through this partnership will provide essential support to children aged 4- 18 in North West London by helping them to overcome the challenges they face and fulfil their potential. The work of both Greenhouse and Place2Be crucially improves the health and wellbeing of children, ensuring they have the best opportunities to learn and achieve academically. Through fundraising for these charities, Quintessentially Foundation will be directly supporting thousands of children, in some of the most difficult of circumstances, to overcome their negative influences, problems and anxieties, to prevent them from entering into a downward spiral of low achievement and aspirations, and to enable them to grow up to be the adults they have a right to be.
